I've been working on this one, on and off for a couple of weeks. He's one of the boys playing on the local rink in the brilliant sunshine. Moved him off to the left to ensure getting the stick in the picture. Picture shows that delightful athleticism, enthusiasm and grace of youth which I so like in shinny hockey - something not so readily seen in the fully padded and helmeted game.I got the title from the sports pages of the Globe and Mail and after hearing the guys discussing league standings in the NHL.
